One of the ornaments in a huge order. I loved it so much I thought it should have it's own picture. It's for the couple's first Christmas together. The guy proposed after Beauty and The Beast, so they wanted a red rose incorporated into the design
Handsculpted from colored Premo Sculpey, 3 inches tall

Tiny pony is tiny! Yes, that is a penny he is standing on. Makes a lovely base I don't get many micro pony requests. I like making them, but because they are so ridiculously small, very few people can justify the price for them. They don't seem to realize that smaller means about a bazillion times harder
Handmade from Premo Sculpey clay, just over half an inch tall.

yeah, I enjoyed my own halloween pic a lot more than I should have, and went ahead and made one of the heroes myself! Green Lantern Tails actually looks so much more awesome in real life than my drawing. This is also my entry into halloween contest, which has YET to see any more entries despite less than a week to go!
also, I'll take this off later, but if anyone wants to buy this guy I'll let him go for $25, no shipping! Send me a PM if you're interested.
This took me a little longer than I wanted it to, but now has the topper for his wedding cake! I hope you like it, and I hope you have a long and happy marriage. Of course there is a video for this, watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf8rWZ…
I liked the full-sized dragon mask so much that I made a half-dragon mask with the Persian motif too. These are dragons for people who like the horns but would rather not have a dragon snout. They're also more affordable than a full-faced dragon.
Actually, without the scales this Persian half dragon doesn't look too terribly dragon-ish. I suppose it could be any kind of horned creature or imp...just a general fantasy mask.
Carved from one piece of 8oz leather, painted with Liquitex acrylics and a brown acrylic antiquing stain.
This mask is available right now at my Etsy shop: [link]
I just finished this new design; a bald eagle mask. It was a special request from my Etsy shop. Lately I've been getting a bunch of requests for bird masks! Last year it was wolves. You never can tell...
Anyway, like all my masks, this one is made from hand carved, hand shaped 8oz vegetable tanned tooling leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.
Custom orders like this one can be requested at my online shop: [link]
This is my representation of an oni mask. An oni is a sort of demon-like creature in Japanese mythology.
Like all my pieces, this mask is carved out of several pieces of 8oz leather, three times the thickness of most Venetian-style leather masks. This allows me to carve the leather deeply, but requires me to shape the entire sculpture by hand with no use of molds or armatures.
I painted it with a variety of acrylic stains that are both waterproof and colorfast. I like to mix my own colors usually, but the bright gold that Liquitex makes was pefect for this design. I also do not use an airbrush...that's all done by hand.
This particular mask is appearing onstage in Japan, from October through mid-December of 2008. It is featured as part of the Muscle Musical "Magicarade" performance.
Many of these pieces are available for sale on my Etsy site; [link]
Dollhouse Miniature in 1:12 Scale Handcrafted from Polymer Clay
This here is a remake of my platter from 2009: [link]
There are some slight variations of course: less cheese, more crackers, etc etc. And I'm fresh out of knives X(
-FIMO and Sculpey brands of polymer clay -Translucent liquid sculpey -Colored chalk pastels -J.W.etc. Clear Varnish -The wooden 'platter' was purchased from Michael's craft store -The little white bowl was purchased from Little Enchantments ([link]) -The green bits you see in the grape clusters are broken off of reindeer moss
Dollhouse Miniature in 1:12 Scale Handcrafted from Polymer Clay
I haven't sculpted meat in quite a while - it's always a treat to try to capture all the shades and textures. The herbs scattered on top are crushed basil leaves
There is actually a hole cut out in the slice - from this angle you can see it: [link]
Daily Deviation: Oh my gosh....THANK YOU!! The DD description especially made me tear up a bit. I am incredibly thankful to dA for giving me such amazing exposure and the chance to have my miniatures seen by such a huge group of supportive people.
I'm still in the mindset I was way back when I joined, just hoping for a few views and comments here and there when I posted a new piece...so this kind of recognition I have a hard time wrapping my head around. But I'm thankful to all of you who have left me comments and favorited my work...I apologize if I don't get a chance to reply to you all but I read every comment and greatly appreciate you
I'm doing my best to not botch up any of the ponies that I'm making, but I've only got 8 of the 10 Trixies I wanted-- due to experimenting with colors... and I've only got 9 of each of Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle because I managed to botch up a mane for each of them... I may try to repaint those if I can sand them down without completely making them worse... but that's really low on my list of things to-do.
I've still got Scootaloo and the Mane Six to go... Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash (and Daring Do) have their kits in the prep stage-- I just puttied almost all their pieces, so once they're sanded, they're next for primer and painting. Twilight and Pinkie are up after them, followed by Rarity and Fluttershy. I still have to make new molds for Applejack... poor girl.
What was that? I only have a month to go??!??!?! RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!!!
I know, I just did one of there... but I've finished Apple Bloom and DJ-Pon3 since then, and wanted to get a new group shot for my front page.
I also snuck my Trixie sculpt in here-- I'm hoping to maybe have a Trixie sometime in the next couple weeks! So I'm looking forward to finally finishing her! Also, I'm sneaking Lyra in there... because she's Lyra.
And Scootaloo joins the ranks of ponies with finished sculpts!
Anyway, I was just having fun with the picture, and since the pith helmet doesn't quite fit on top of Scootaloo's chicken hair-- Apple Bloom got to wear the helmet and Scoots got the bow! Daaaa! Isn't she cute!
Well then with Shadow i release the third model of my Sonic Series
Shadow is one of my favorite characters in the whole series he's that typical anti-hero "hey shadow, we need your help!" *fuck you i do what i want!!! ..... nah ok i do it, but not for you and you can still fuck yourself*
you know what i mean
even i'm really really happy with the result i'm not very pleased with the idea of a seperated head i glued some woodsticks into the top of the torso but even with them the head is wobbling and shacking arround also, what you see here are the only photos without a stabilization after a half day, i noticed that the head is bend down so i had to put again one of those pvc sticks into it and even with that, it is still moving at the moment, the model stand on my desk with two rulers on each side so that i can see the measure and if it still bending
i apologize for this, but because of the fur spikes, it was not possible for me to combine head and torso
this time i made no building process photos because the model itself is realtive easy (also those photos i made are not very useful ) the only tricky thing is how to combine the spikes to the head that's why i designed some pieces, that you have to wrap them arround the allready build spikes to combine them those pieces are mostly the biggest and have no tabs on both sides
to build the head itself start with the eyes and build the whole face including the ears then follow the order top center spike top left and right spike including the two pieces at page 30
second row center spike and add the combiners at page 36 second row left and right after that you need to close the head with the pieces at page 40
take your time here and think before you add this or that piece
the rest is simple you can build fists and shoes seperated start the torso form the feet, add the tail and attach the first backside sting then attache the second sting build the chest stings seperated (the whole page) and add it to the torso then close the torso on top and add the arms
then you can add fists ans shoes
adding the head to the torso well, as i said, i found a way but not the best but i think you can so it better and don't underestimate the size of the head it will be bigger as you think
file description: the file contains as always three pdo files one with texture and folding lines one with texture and without folding lines and one white version with folding lines
so you need the Pepakura Viewer what you can get "here"
all three pdo's are not protected so if you have the Designer, you can edit the sheets in the way you want
the package also includes the original texture and a few screenshots what i used specially for the fur
model description: the model comes on 41 pages with 206 pieces and is 50cm tall it stands without any weight in the legs i would count the difficult level this time at 7/10
Minor information! i don't prefere to download the sheets anymore the model isn't really stable and collapsed after a few weeks because of that i overhauled the 3d model and will build a new, more stable version of Shadow if you still want to download the sheets you can do that on the top right download button
some word to the bloggers
you have the permission to use my photos this model is a Deviantart only download so do not upload this model somewhere else and the most important thing
oh man, that took long but finally i can show you and share the final model of Tails
before you now download the model, print and start to build it without any background informations i have to warn you, building this model was just a pain is the ass and it was probably the hardest model i build so far and in my case that should mean something
even the editing was hell and meanwhile i know my job, but had i known that it would be that hard, i had edit the model much much more there are still a few issues in the mesh but no worries, i will explain everything in the building process shots.
i can't really say why it was so hard, there are not much pieces or rather, not more then other model i also cut the sheets in the best way i know, but to combine all the stuff, specially the wiskers, the chest and the tail pieces, was just ugh maybe because this time it was just something special the model is flying, the tail is quite the same size as the rest of the model and to find a working method to combine it with the torso took me a whole week but hey, it is working as you can see and that's part of the job, to find and solve issues of the own models
i also made a lot of photos this time, that you shouldn't have that much problems here
model description: the model will come on 37 pages with 265 pieces and is 45cm tall again, the model has a flying pose and will not stand anywhere it is very hard and has a lot of weird looking pieces
